Sunyani-based rapper and songwriter K’Swagg has released a short film as an introduction to his upcoming mixtape which is slated to be released in the first week of September.
Rebirth as the EP is named talks about how he has grown into the brand he is now, and how much he has strived to achieve greatness. Using music as a tool to effect change in the society, K’Swagg sets to use this EP to motivate the budding youth that the light at the end of the talent is not a mirage but a reality.
Known to be very good with his lyricism and delivery, the UTSH recording artiste K’Swagg’s “Rebirth” album is surely worth the wait as it promises to be one of his best works so far as his musical journey is concerned.
Music producer and songwriter, PoeBoi has finally released the much-anticipated mixtape dubbed ‘’SPREADLOVE’’ , featuring some of the talented upcoming artists in Ghana. The 9-track tape (including an interlude and a bonus track) features G Ranks, Yaw LeVelz, Jay Buzzles, Leonello, Jetsin and Ovo Kobby.
Last year, 2 songs (More Benz, Less Friends & Friday Night) from the tape were dropped to promote the project. Both songs received positive comments. The mixtape is a body of work full of fireworks which cuts across various genres in the African music scene and PoeBoi strongly believes there’s a song for everyone.
SPREADLOVE generally talks about PoeBoi’s dreams, love, hatred, loyalty and some of the issues faced by the Ghanaian youth.
Production credits goes to PoeBoi himself and FABdidit.
All the songs on “SPREADLOVE’’ were mixed and mastered by FABdidit, the executive producer of the tape. We believe music lovers will definitely love this project. Enjoy!
Stoner Record’s frontline act BossBae is ready to take over the scene with ‘Disease EP’.
The album which features dancehall giants like Epixode, Rudebwoy Ranking, Tsoobi and Nigerian act Toff Pandis promises to be one of a kind with BossBae’s ingenuity and one of a kind talent.
Affectionately called ‘International Bad Gyal’ by her fans, the ‘Disease EP’ is made up of 7 tracks which shows different sides to the Dancehall queenmother.
BossBae rose to limelight in 2016 with her cover of the famous ‘City’, originally performed by Alkaline and followed up with singles like ‘Bag A Hole’, ‘Ask Di Police’,’Tell Nuhin’ which featured Alvan Brown and a couple of awesome videos.
Although the release date is yet to be announced, BossBae promises that this year is certainly going to be fireworks as she has lots of works in stock for fans.
After postponing the release date of “Like a Star 0.9” which was around last year, Ice Box has finally dropped the body of work.
Kumasi based artiste and the B.O Society front-liner “Ice Box” takes us through his life through his music, and this EP is not different.
His first track “Anyway”, the artist talks about the hustle to be successful in Ghana isn’t an easy task but regardless, he’s determined to make it by any means.
“Glory” which is number two on the EP is about him praying for his mum and working hard to be a winner to gain the glory.
In “Saint” he talks about disappointments from some ladies he knew from way back before he started gaining grounds and he talks about his bad habits too.
“Tomorrow” is the track he talks about future plans and how he’s grinding to meet all the plans made.
“A Man” talks about his enthusiasm to make things happen in life for him and his team.
He features his fellow music colleagues like Mr Jace, Jay Buzzles, Kwesi Kevin and his frequent collaborator Chief Kellz who released his latest tape “Trap Nights in Kentinkrono” last month.
Last year December, Rich Miller gave us a Christmas gift in the form of “The Steppin” mixtape. This year, Christmas came early. Our musical Santa Claus is here with an EP, as a follow-up to the previous tape, “NDILIDI” EP. The 8-track EP is a body of work full of fireworks. Rich Miller’s delivery is on another level. Within a year, the young and talented rapper has improved his rap skill.
NDILIDI is an abbreviation of RichMiller’s favourite catch phrase, “Nobody Do It Like I Do It”, Even though this body work is to captivate good music lovers, it touches on the reality of life. It is also more of soulful yet invigorating rap music that aims at impacting lives. The production on this project is so on point that it makes you want to push your ear buds further in, to hear every lyric and appreciate each element of instrument and sampled vocals. Production credits go to Phredxter, Krizick, A2Rbeatz and FabDIdIt. The man behind this sonic excellence is 1Kwame. “NDILIDI” is here to serve rap fans and music lovers at large.

Hardworking and talented musician Rich Miller is more concerned about feeding his listeners with full body of works than singles. He’s the type of artiste that likes engaging his audience with interesting conversations in the form of soulful yet invigorating rap music. His previous instalment “The Steppin” caught the attention of rap lovers.
After making trends with singles like “Ride With Me”, Rich Miller is here with another body of work which bears the title of his favourite catch statement, “Nobody Do It Like I Do It”, abbreviated as “NDILIDI.” The wordsmith took time to explain the concept behind the artwork of his album.
The white nature or colour of the album signifies truth and victory at same time.
RichMiller’s face in the picture depicts consciousness that runs through the songs on the album. E.g., Depression, Relax, Lord forgive me, etc.
The dairy with the pen literary means he wrote reality or daily life activities and made it music.
The clock beside him which didn’t fully appear clarifies that his time to take over is now coming.
His legs are in white socks and up on the chair to establish a point that he’s not stepping down now as a king or a leader of a new generation.
The back cover artwork has his t-shirt down with the inscription “NOBODY DO IT LIKE I DO IT” which has been abbreviated as NDILIDI.
“NDILIDI” is an 8-track EP which features Hotboy DNA, Toff Dawg and Tina, with post-production handled by 1Kwame, and some beats produced by Krizick and Phredxter. The EP is set for release on Friday, 8th December, 2017.

Paapa, has been off our update list for a while after dropping Songs for Kuukua some years back. Paapa is well known for his great artistry and creativity. I mean, who makes a beautiful song out of the term “pure water?” His new instalment proves nothing but a classic as Alexander Kwakye details it in this review.
In Paapa’s own words, he utters “this is a 5-track project with sober, minimal but hopeful songs recorded in the comfort (and inconvenience) of my bedroom. Production by Paapa, mixing and mastering by Jayso, powered by Skillions Records.” He shares emotionally, “I’m glad this is now in your hands and ears. I hope you listen to it closely, feel deeply, and share freely. Stay tuned for Vol. 2, and make sure you’re on my mailing list – you don’t want to miss out on new music and exclusives! I appreciate you.”
Cop this piece yourself and experience the true blessings and heavenly experience that comes with it.
Paapa has not done any major work after releasing the highly acclaimed ‘Songs for Kukua’. All his fans were more than excited when he announced his new project, “Technical Difficulties” on his Twitter page. I mean who wouldn’t be? In his new project, he releases them in installment, and the first one is a 5-track EP. Paapa does nothing but classical, soulful music, which touch the soul, reverb and leaves an everlasting impression. And I bet you, his new project is nothing different from his usual.
He starts off with a great love song. It’s very difficult, perhaps a technical difficulty, to find out who really loves you in today’s world, in which the clause ‘I love you’ means nothing anymore. On ‘How will I know’, Paapa tries to address this difficulty; he tries to solve it maybe. Today, love has turned to be mere lip service. This is what Paapa meant in the opening line of ‘How Will I Know’- ‘Oh I heard you say you love me.’ He goes further to warn that, those are very heavy words and that we should be ready to keep your words in difficult times. ‘Would you be ready to carry these heavy words when they start to hurt?’ This rhetorical sum up what real love is supposed to be. ‘How will I know’ addresses one difficulty. This is not the only difficulty Paapa addressed on his new project.
Another very popular one, which could be right in front of you, is also addressed. On ‘Infront Of You’, Paapa talks about how dreamers stay dreamers. Today’s world is made of millennials who keep wake, dreaming big enough to change the world. Some of them are kept busy with their dreams such that ‘their pillows have been kind to them, but their mind won’t let them be.’- They are sleepless, ‘anxiety [about the future] so loud’ that they ‘can’t hear GOD’s symphony’. This act of most millennials is changing the globe for the better, but Paapa warns the millennials, and all dreamers alike, that they should be careful of the dreams they dream. He implies the possibility of never achieving one’s dreams, probably due to lack of focus. The words of a wise man that ‘Don’t let dreams blind you’ ‘Cause you go miss what dey infront of you’, were just the perfect choice of words to get the warning across effectively.
Back in high school, there was a book which could literally solve all mathematics questions. On the third track of Technical Difficulties 1, Paapa wants someone to call Aki Ola to answer certain questions. The questions posed have nothing to do with mathematics however, but everything to do with broken homes resulting from wars. Domestic wars, civil wars have undoubtedly created more broken homes than fictional love has created broken hearts. For this, Paapa calls on Aki Ola, who’s the king that Paapa presumes knows everything to answer all his whys. Aki Ola could also be any father who leaves a mother helpless and a child fatherless. The latter is not uncommon in today’s world, and Paapa could technically be using Aki Ola to address this issue.
Even though ‘Losers’ sounds like the result of all the difficulties addressed by Paapa so far, it has another theme on its own, which likewise addresses another difficulty the globe is facing. In a world where everyone thinks they are right, no human value- respect, honesty, obedience, and others, is left. Everyone is trying to win, in the end we will all be losers. He addresses scorn and pride on this track. You know, I know. We know we both would lose everything if we all try to win, but we try still. We can solve this, definitely by being together.
This brings us to the last track on the EP, ‘Together’. So let’s sing it together. Let’s dance together. ‘Let’s do this life together’, ‘Eat cake and have icing together’. Paapa suggests on the last track of the first instalment of his new project that, unity does the impossible. He admonishes everyone to forgive and forget and break bread together. He believes that if we do everything together, the world would be better- perhaps he would not need to address all the difficulties the world is facing, as he has done in the first four tracks. The best place on this earth is together!!!!
Without any doubt, the first instalment of Technical Difficulties is a masterpiece. Talk of JaySo’s mastering and that Adomaa’s mellifluous voice on ‘Infront Of You’ completes the work as nothing but a classic. Hope you enjoy it too.
